Organisers of Sheffield's Outlines Festival have announced the first wave of talent for next year's event.

The multi-venue festival returns to Sheffield city centre for a second time from on March 3-4, showcasing established artists and up-and-coming acts.

Outlines, which is programmed by the team behind Tramlines Festival, was created as a sister to the much-loved summer event during the colder months.

After the success of the 2016 debut, festival organisers have extended the event, which will now be held over two days.

Acts announced in the first wave include: Jagwar Ma, Slow Club, Lady Leshurr and The Selecter among the key names so far.

Festival Programmer Kate Hewett said: "We've expanded Outlines for its second year to allow us to showcase an even broader range of artists and to give more of a platform to breaking talent from across a range of genres.

"With the likes of Loyle Carner, Shura and Spring King having featured on 2016's bill, we're confident that there will be some new names to suit all tastes on 2017's lineup.

"Whereas in 2016, Outlines took place throughout a single day, 2017's event will be happening across several key venues on March 3-4.

"The festival is set to feature a genre-hopping bill of up to 150 artists."

Emerging artists from across the country are also being encouraged to apply to play at the event, with a number of slots still available in all festival venues. Applications are open now via the festival's website at

Weekend tickets are available now for just £15 while stocks last.
